"The capacity to read particularly is not just a nice to have. It's actually a moral imperative. If we want people to be good in the world, this is a huge issue, especially for designers, especially in the type world, especially right. If there's any, if we can say there's any moral claim of what's good for us, (as type designer) is people being able to read."
In this episode, I speak with Thomas Jochin, founder, partner, adjunct lecturer, and practicing type designer.

We also discuss his partnership with a fellow educator to tackle the daunting task of reading proficiency, and It has something to do with type.
